Hello! My name is Michelle Merillat and I live in Chandler with my husband and two children who also attend CUSD. When you don't see me at school, you would most likely find me with my kids at dance or soccer! I have been dancing since the age of 10 and have never stopped! In my spare time, I love to read novels, especially realistic fiction, historical fiction, and memoirs. I also love to create and craft personalize home decor and clothing accessories.

My Education and Professional Background

I am proud to say that I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Language and Literacy in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been teaching since 2001. My career started in the Tempe Unified School district where I taught for 5 1/2 years. I have been teaching in CUSD since 2007. I have taught grades Kindergarten through 4th grades in the classroom. I was happy to call the Jacobson library my home for four years. My latest adventure lies teaching technology to grades K-6. I also serve on the Language and Literacy team and teach reading intervention.

My Educational Philosophy

As the Jacobson Technology Teacher, I want all of my students to feel welcome in the technology lab. I want the lab to be a place that students can come and feel confident and proud of their learning in the new ways of learning through technology!
